This YHA is the biggest hostel I have ever stayed in. Like every YHA they have a free Wi-Fi hotspot in the lounge area. Location is not great but this is were all the backpacker places are. About 20 minute walk to city centre but close to train and bus station. Very clean hostel, only bad thing.. The hostel is...

I stayed at Brisbane YHA twice last year- the rooms are nice and clean, yet affordable. The staff are super friendly and helpful which is greatly appreciated! This place has so many nice amenities for guests such as a complete kitchen, computers, an air conditioned movie room, a nice little cafe, and best of all, a sweet rooftop pool with...

My friend and I stayed here for two nights and it felt like we were in a hotel not a hostel. We were really impressed with the reception and social areas which has an impressive view of Brisbane from the pool/eating area. It was very sociable, especially on a Friday evening on BBQ night, which was surprising considering we visited...

This is a great, clean and comfortable hostel with all the facilities you'll need and a fantastic rooftop view! We stayed only for one night but I will choose to stay here again when I next visit Brisbane. Reception were helpful and we had a good night sleep in a six bed mixed dorm.

This is a very good hostel, most of the staff is very friendly and helpful, that's when you don't have to deal with the chatty ones who take forever to acknowledge you. Free wifi is only at reception. I booked a 4 share with ensuite, I don't mind paying the extra for the privacy but I must admit I was...

Brisbane City YHA is a big hostel located about 600m from Roma Station. It certainly has a lot to offer, such as a rooftop swimming pool, very nice common areas (TV Lounge, Pool room etc.) and tries to raise conciousness for the environment - hence they offer plenty of recycling stations, even for clothes, batteries and so on, which is...

Usually hostels are somewhat a little rundown and grotty in some areas but not this one! It is definitely like a hotel which has also been said by other reviewers. Wicked common areas, the rooftop pool has incredible views of the city and there is even movie/pool rooms. It's a shame Brisbane as a city isn't a bit better which...

I only stayed here for one night so I didn't get the chance to take advantage of all the facilities - but what I did have was a great time. The male staff member on reception when I arrived (he had a funny hat on with a lightbulb on it!) was soo helpful! Most helpful staff member I've come across...

Perfect position in Brisbane walk straight down the hill and you are in the queens plaza! Suncorp stadium in a five min walk away and the barracks have all your groceries, resturants and movies covered. The Roma st station for all public transport is a three min walk down the hill easy!!

I enjoyed my stay at YHA City Brisbane as I found the staff to be very helpful with any questions I had. I found the film night on a Monday a great way to spend an evening after a long day of sight seeing. What I most liked about this hostel was the vibe and atmosphere it gave; it was...
